Another "shop walls" thread

A while back, when someone had queried about a good material for shop walls, someone else responded with a suggestion to include 1x4s inletted into the studs at two heights for the eventual attachment of cabinets.
I don't recall the heights he recommended. Somewhere around 36" strikes me as about right for the lower ones, but I can't for the life of me remember the upper figure. I would imagine 72" wouldn't be too bad, but I don't want to screw up if there's a standard of some kind, or even a better idea.
Thanks, if anyone can remember or has a suggestion.

height to be 36" then you migh want to lower bracing lower than 36". For example, kitchen cabs are 34.5" (plus 1.5" counter thickness). Of course a 1x4 might span the difference, but think about rough vs finished.

Typically, the lower cabinets are made 34 1/2" or 35 1/4" high plus the countertop. The nailer along the back is 2" to 3 1/2" wide and the top of it is at the 34 1/2" or 35 1/4", so the blocking has to center around the nailer. The upper cabinets typically start 18" above the lowers, or at 54" with the cabinets being 30", 36", or 42" high with nailers top and bottom. Although this is typical, cabinets can be any height an set anywhere on a wall. I have had owners that want the lowers anywhere from 34" to 38" final height and the uppers set at different heights on the wall.
